    My sister and I have just returned from India, doing the 10-day Private Golden Triangle and Holy Tour from Delhi, with Abyss Tours. WOW.WOW.WOW...what a fantastic experience it was! Everything was very good and we enjoyed the service of Mr. Abid Zargar and Abyss Tours. The driver Mr. Singh was so excellent and all of out guides were knowledgable, friendly and prompt. If there were any issues, Mr. Zargar was available 24/7 and was very timely in response and dealing with any questions we had. We were so appreciative for the drivers, guides and Mr Zargar himself, always checking in on our welfare and comfort. India is a fascinating country, but very overwhelming to first timer travelers. We loved our trip and are very happy and satisfied with Abyss Tours. We would definitely recommend them and I am actually looking forward to another trip to India with them......Kerala next time, I think!

    We all generally enjoyed the tour but it was a bit disappointing from the start to find out that when we were in Delhi Red Fort and Lotus monument was shut on a Monday so we didn't see them. The guide was very knowledgeable and thenride in the rickshaw was a highlight in this mad, dirty, noisy, vibrant city. We did the sound and light show which was a bit of a rip off as the meal we got was like an Indian Macdonalds, very disappointing considering what we paid for it and what the entrance fee was. On the main tour we were taken to the more western area of Connaught Place for lunch at Accord 21 I think it was called. The lunch was over 50 which really,shocked us and we knew if this continued we would run out of money. Also no one gave us a heads up that 99 of the monuments was 500 rupees each which soon started to add up. We would also have liked some guidance on tips for guides and drivers as that was the most tiring part of the trip constantly being pressured to tip everyone. The actual itinerary was good and the hotel was okay. The Ghandi memorial park was an extra stop which we enjoyed. Long drive to Jaipur which was fascinating but you could not go into town after 9pm, not safe, and then to Agra along pretty hectic roads with constant horns being blown. We were told that the Taj Mahal was closed on Friday while we there so I asked for them to arrange for us to have a visit as soon as we arrived at Agra. We were all pretty exhausted going round it but couldn't miss it. Next day we saw the Agra Fort which was interesting and then we requested missing the mausoleum and wanted to go to the park on the opposite side of the river to the Taj Mahal. We were dropped at the station, a good hours drive away to get on the overnight train to Varanasi, unfortunately we were not in a 4 bed compartment but were in the aisle which was very disappointing considering how long ago we booked this trip. These are just heads up for anyone booking this trip in the future, learning by our mistakes. The guide in Varanasi was brilliant and we all connected with him and the place, this was the highlight of the tour for us. The only thing that could have improved this part of the trip would have been for all of us to be in the same car like the rest of the trip, but apparently it had broken down, hence more tips! Hotel good but no fridge and no ice

    I would recommend this tour, the hotels that were booked and the drivers arranged were all good. Of course you expect some guides to be hit and miss but all were well prepared, knowledgeable. Unfortunately the train was cancelled from Agra to Varanasi but was not a shock to the system. My wife and I travel privately with the company.
